My friend David at McLain Wiesand, is gearing up for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s annual Showhouse which is being held at a house called Woodholme. Constructed in 1925 during prohibition, this Tudor-style home features two hidden liquor storage areas: a sliding cabinet behind a bookcase and a wine cellar built into the dining room wall. The four bedroom, three and a half bath home also features a library, a sun porch and an alchemist’s chamber. David got the Alchemist’s Chamber.
He’s been chronicling his adventures in designing his space on his blog, and when I was looking at some pictures, I found something that I just loved! It’s a sconce made from an artist’s model’s wooden hand, with an Edison Bulb! Is it medieval, masculine, industrial, gothic or steampunk? There are two of them with their cords trailing down the walls. The sconces reminded me of two I had seen recently at Gore-Dean (where we had a fun time yesterday afternoon!), that are two fists clutching candles. Go over to David’s and look at the fun process he’s done of transforming a room!
